Sarah Palin charges Alaskan taxpayers for Kid’s travel

22 10 2008

Remember when Ernie Fletcher used the Kentucky’s state plane to make campaign stops?  It was legal if what he was doing was official business, so he made several ribbon cutting ceremonies along the trail.  Governors in other states have came under fire for improper use of state assets, or misuse of the general fund.

Why does the entire Palin family go out on the campaign trail together?  And the gossip of the day is that Alaska is paying for the Palin kid’s travel expenses.

Here it is my moment of zen:

reported from CNN:

Palin has charged the state $21,012 for her three daughters’ 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights since she took office in December 2006. She also has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls.

I can’t believe it took this long before someone noticed the trip charges.  Tomorrow she might hold her first press conference, denouncing this as “regular liberal media attacks” and claim family is off limits.  Well Sarah, your not allowed to use the checkbook with the long checks in it for whatever you want.  Maybe you could blame it on your executive assistant, say you had no idea how plane tickets are paid for.
